Hello. Before I get started, I know this is a cat wiki, ok? Please don't beat me up for putting something about a dog on here..

Tonight I was walking around my block looking at all the Christmas lights... I saw my neighbors car going down the street. He pulled over and told me something that would change my life forever. He told me that his dog, Cool Joe had passed away yesterday.

Cool Joe was a great dog. He was a German Sheperd, just like my dog. Max and Cool Joe always used to play with each other at our fence. I can't remember a time when Cool Joe wasn't in the neighborhood. He always came to my house to visit us.

This past year was his worst year health wise. In late January, he started to get really skinny. By summer you could see his ribs, and he started limping. By this month, December, he stopped eating. They thought they were gonna have to put him down last week. They took him to the vet and they gave him this medicine to help him build an appitite back up. It work for about 2 days. Those 2 days were great for him. He got up and visited me for the last time 2 days ago. I thought he was doing better. But I saw his eyes. I knew that his time was almost up. I told him my goodbyes, and he walked off with a slight limp.

My life will never be the same without Cool Joe. I just don't know what to do right now... I thought we was doing great! BUT NO! It was the up before the down. I miss him already....
